TRB Annual Meeting (Conference)

The Transportation Research Board meets every year in January.  The proceedings of the meeting (sometimes called a conference) are published on CD-ROM and distributed to the attendees. The Libraries are not always able to purchase a copy, but must rely on donations from attendees.  If you get one, feel free to donate your copy to our library.

TRB announced they would no longer publish via DVDs or thumb drives as of 2015.  Here is the information for access. The Libraries may not have access to this resource due to the TRB's publication policies.

Years that are available for check out can be found through our catalog.  If on CD ROM or DVD you will find them in the Performing Arts and Media Library located on the bottom floor (Level One) of Mullins Library.
